An interesting article about the possible start of the end of the dominance of the Windows OS. In particular this quote:
“Right now, and as much as x86 users do not want to admit it, the Mac OS is already better [and has been since 2001! -Tim] than Windows in its modern look and feel as well as its functionality. I see too many smart people with Mac laptops nowadays.”
I’ve been proclaiming the awesomeness of Mac OS X ever since Brandon converted me late last year, but this is coming from a reputable, knowledgeable PC Magazine editor who is thoroughly familiar with both Windows and Mac OS…and operating systems in general, so take his opinion as highly valuable.
On a side note, I would just like to address those out there who gripe about Macs being too expensive. The Mac OS X and iLife ’05 alone, both of which come with any new Mac today, will make your life a heckuva lot easier, will increase productivity, and will save you time, and thus, money in the long run (after a brief learning curve of course). And this, along with the quality you get from Apple in my mind justifies the extra cost.
…now, if only I could afford one myself…
